Product Description

Our one trip (new) 20ft Open Hard Top (or Tin Top) shipping containers are typically used to ship or store goods that are best, or more easily, loaded through the top of the container. This option comes with a removable hard top roof but open tops do typically come with a tarpaulin cover. Most of these are also now available with a removable header bar above the cargo doors as well.

Open top tarpaulin shipping containers are generally a more cost effective solution to the ‘load from the top’ problem but for some customers or projects the hard top options are necessary. Note: if you do go for a tarp top we can also help supply extra large tarpaulins if your goods are too tall for the standard tarp.

All these units are original shipping containers, i.e. they are factory made as open top containers and they have not been converted from normal dry (or closed top) containers. The converted units typically have much lower payloads and are not as strong or as rigid as the original units.

Generally speaking these are of interest to customer who need to export some specialist cargo. For site storage use we would most likely recommend a converted option as the payload we consider are classed safe for lifting whilst loaded. If this is going to be sat static on your site storing oversize items then a cheaper converted unit is likely to be more cost effective – but open tops for static storage use are very rarely sought after.

Our new units are all held in our Rotterdam depot, we typically have smaller numbers in stock ready to go at 24 hours notice and can have them moved into most of our UK depots very quickly.

We have previously had a few in some UK locations but it is very much on an ‘as and when basis’ so its always worth contacting us to check stock levels. We can of course move units to any of our UK depots at reasonably short notice. For this reason local prices and availability will vary.

Please be advised that these are sold as ‘one trip containers’ and are not brand new. All of our shipping containers are built in the factory in China or the far east and have done 1 trip into the UK since new. Some minor cosmetic wear may be evident from this initial trip. Minor dents and scrapes are reasonably common, as are tire marks inside your container where a fork lift truck or similar may have unloaded goods from inside the container.

All of our containers are checked over in our UK depots before sale, and are sold with our wind and watertight guarantees. You can read more on what wear we consider acceptable in our recent article what to expect from a one trip shipping container.
